First of all, I really love books by Max Lucado and this one is no exception. In my opinion, he is one of the most amazing Christian authors. In his book, No Wonder They Call Him the Savior, he brings the struggle of Jesus in the
, the humanity of Jesus on the cross, and the power of the resurrection to life. He also relates in a very profound way the story of not only Jesus, but the people who loved, lived, hated, and betrayed Jesus. Garden of Gethsemane
In this book you will have the chance to look through the Roman soldier’s eyes at the foot of the Cross, understand Mary’s perspective on that fateful day, see God’s unconditional love to the thief on the Cross, and then also experience the feelings of “Doubting Thomas”.
I was especially moved by the one chapter where he went through the whole story of Jesus, from the Garden to the resurrection, in just one word sentences. It was a very powerful chapter called “Alive”. I also appreciate the personal stories that Mr. Lucado added to this book and the powerful words of testimonies of unlikely people of whom God saved, transformed, and then used for His glory. I would highly recommend this book and suggest you defiantly purchase it for your own library.
